This is the journal of Mariam's eyes.
My name is Frederic Lecut, and I am a mosaic artist. My workshop is located behind my house in Headland, a small town of Southern Alabama. I share the house with my dog Mugen, my lazy cat Pomponette, and my daughter's cat Zoya. Behind the shop live a few chickens, and you will probably hear from them along this blog.
My good friend Marie - who lives in Londinieres, France - commissioned a mosaic from me. We live one ocean apart but I still wanted her to be able to witness the birth of her mosaic, Mariam's eyes. And this is what this blog is about...
|The inspiration behind Mariam's eyes|
Mariam is the Arabic name of Marie, the mother of Jesus. The mosaic being of a veiled woman, I thought this name would be perfect for it.
